Dame Eileen Rosemary Mayo was an artist and designer who worked in almost every available medium — drawings, woodcuts, lithographs on stone and tempera, tapestry and silk screening. In addition to being a printmaker, illustrator, calligrapher and muralist, she designed coins, stamps, tapestry and posters, and wrote and illustrated eight books on natural science.

She moved to New Zealand in 1962 and remained here until her death in 1994. She taught at the University of Canterbury, was a founding member of Sydney Printmakers, and was on the Print Council of New Zealand.
